On June 17, 2020, Tulane University held the Homemade Mask (Virtual) Summit, organized by the Just Wanna Quilt team of Elizabeth Townsend Gard, Hailey Barnett, Whitney Chatmon, John Spartz, and Becky Blank. Hosted by Newcomb Institute, and co-hosted by the Phyllis Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, and the Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. More information can be found at http://www.justwannaquilt.com.

Homemade Mask (Virtual) Summit is where we celebrate the entrepreneurial activities of the mask makers around the country, talk to industrial hygienists about how to safely move around in this world (including how many people should be in an elevator at one time), talk to the scientists, and connect the compassion of caring and making masks with BLM.
